Oh my goodness, Stella is Liam’s TWIN! There is no denying they are brother and sister.

Darlene on

I was thinking the same thing Meg they look exactly alike. What a gorgeous family.

Mirabai on

Cute kids. Life seems to be one big photo shoot for this family.

greta on

they are such a happy and loving looking family. i wish them continued happiness, health and love.

emily on

Liam is all Spelling and Stella looks like a teeny tiny Dean. Seriously, I never got it when people said Liam looked like Dean. This baby certainly does.

selena on

She sure has a cute family. But when I see all the photo shoots they make, I cannot understand why people accuse the jolie pitt to sell their children, when these two make a photo shoots every month!!!!!!!!!!

Nikka on

What a cute family ! What happened to “I cant wait to dress her all in pink” lol

Alanda on

Lil Stella looks just like her papa!! Cute family!

They all look alike! Adorable family.

facingdawn on

Liam looks just like Dean! Kingston looks just like Gavin. Honor looks just like cash. Lots of mini-daddies out there lately!

brooklyn on

Stella is very cute! Very cute family indeed.

T on

I just love them!

Krisitn on

They are such a beautiful family! I am sooo happy for Tori!

Tammy's Tupperware on

Oh my gosh, both of their little ones look like Dean. I see no Tori in them at all. Anyways, I just love this family. They always look so happy together!

tink1217 on

BOTH those babies look like daddy. I mean, I see Spelling in Liam, but for the most part he is daddy’s clone! And little Stella is following right along!! Gorgeous family!

ang on

awww,stella looks ready for a nap.gorgeous shoes on her too. tori’s just blogged about the number 1 spot on her myspace. she is so cute when she’s excited, saying “As always, thanks for the endless amount of love and support.
I love all my fans!”

Lily on

The Spellings have such strong features. They all look so much alike, that I thought for sure Tori’s kids would look like her, but they don’t! Both those kids look EXACTLY like their father. Dean must have some strong blood! The babies are adorable.

ERICKA on

Funny, I think Liam is Tori’s twin and Stella looks EXACTLY like her daddy. I don’t see much resemblance between the kids.

Lisa Daki on

Tori is so down to earth and has such a loving husband and beautiful kids I wish the best for them.

terri on

I think I agree with you Ericka.

Carolynn on

Wow…Stella looks just like Dean. Adorable!

Becky on

I love this family. Really, I do. They are just too precious for words, seem like they truly love each other and have such adorable kids. I even watch their show religously and bought her book. The only thing…their pictures always seemed so staged. Obviously poperatizi (sp?) wasn’t just hanging in their backyard so I am sure it was for a photoshoot or something but I wish we would see more pics with them out and about with the kids that weren’t so staged. Just my opinion, but honestly, I do love them.

momof3girls on

I agree Becky, it seems staged. I remember reading once that Tori will not smile if out and about so the paps can’t get a good pic of her. But the ones she poses at she is all smiles.

kh on

I don’t know watching the show I kept thinking where is your new baby. I know they have a nanny, but it seems like they are not that involved. Of course we only see a small piece of their lives, but when my daughter was born she was rarely without me.

Nina on

i think little stella looks like her daddy…beautiful family🙂

Mia on

aww look at the baby🙂

yeah, she looks liker her daddy.

Many of those-also to add: Shiloh looks like Brad, and Violet looks like Ben.

Stephany on

Stella is adorable! She’s so chunky and I agree with everyone – she looks JUST like Dean!

CelebBabyLover on

Mia- You think Violet looks like Ben? Seriously? You are one of the few people I have heard say that. Vi is all her mommy! I once saw a picture of Jen when she was around Violet’s age, and honsetly, if you had put that picture next to one of Violet, I wouldn’t have been able to tell who was who!

Similarly, Shi actually looks a lot like Angie did at the same age. Now her brother Knox, on the other hand, DOES look a lot like Brad (at least he did in his and Viv’s debut photoshoot. I’d love to see what he and Viv look like now!). Viv seems to favor Angie more.

Anyway, as far as this picture goes…I was actually thinking how different Stella looks from Liam! She even looks different than Liam did when he was her age! Personally, I see alot of Tori in Liam, and I’m not sure who Stella resembles yet.

SouthernBelle on

It’s unreal how much baby Stella looks like Liam and how they both resemble their father! Strong genes, indeed! Beautiful kids! ☺

Gogo on

Why dont we ever seen Dean with his other kids?

Jane on

Mia- I think Violet looks more like Jennifer Garner than Ben!

Emily on

I love love love this sweet family and I always have to see what cute outfits the kids will wear next. I hope there will be another season of their show. And I can’t wait for Tori’s next book to come out!

Helen on

I can see a little of Aaron Spelling in Liam

Bancie1031 on

I can see some resemblance between Stella and Liam now (except Stella looks to have dark hair).
I love this family! Tori is definitely lucky to have such a beautiful family.

far on

WOW,, lots of comments on how great this family is and so on…does anyone remembers that both Tori and Dean were already married when they met?? Tori and Dean committed adultery, which is a big sin. It doesn’t matter at all if they were already in unhappy marriages…HE ALREADY HAS TWO CHILDREN!!! How can he feel like a man pandering to the camera, making money on reality tv over the births of his 3rd and 4th children, acting like it’s the first time? God help this LOVELY couple when the time comes for them to answer some questions up above,,,

far on

a bunch of adulterers….
